Reese Witherspoon TBT Pic Earns ‘Legally Blonde’ Cheers: Sofia Vergara Boos After Their ‘Hot Pursuit’ Flops [Video]

Reese Witherspoon turned TBT into Too Bubbly Temptress. Reese showed that long before she became Legally Blonde, she was high schoolishly bubbly by sending out a Throwback Thursday ofherself as a cheerleader, reported People.

Witherspoon shared her TBT photo dating back to middle school. And Reese made it clear that she was proud of her status cheering at Harding Academy Generals in Nashville.

While Witherspoon began working at age 7, the TBT photo also showed that she sought to have a normal upbringing.

“#TBT to my days as a proud General #cheernation #firstsquad #lilgeneral,” posted Reese.

In addition to modeling, Witherspoon took home the prize at the Ten-State Talent Fair when she was only 11. But the beauty shown in the TBT photo also got great grades and majored in English literature at prestigious Stanford University.

Reese and Sofia Vergara teamed up for a movie that drew on that bubbly personality, Hot Pursuit.

Witherspoon and Vergara became pals as they filmed the buddy film, but their dreams of a success turned to nightmares when it flopped at the box office, reported Radar Online.

And that flop led to anger from Sofia, who had hoped that Reese would help her get a leg up on escaping from her years on TV’s Modern Family to pursue more variety in the movie world.

“Sofia and Reese have turned the movie’s failure into a brutal blame game,” said a source. “Reese blames Sofia’s accent and ‘irritating laugh,’ while Sofia blames Reese for not being sexy or funny enough.”

But it was truly upsetting for Vergara, added the insider, who wanted to use Hot Pursuit as a springboard to dive into a new movie career.

“Sofia has a love/hate relationship with Modern Family. Its shooting schedule is long and difficult, but if she had a real movie career, she could leave… Sofia was hoping to have some kind of leverage for next season’s contract negotiations, but because Hot Pursuit was such a turkey, she needs the show more than ever.”

In contrast, as the Inquisitr reported, Witherspoon’s career in movies just keeps expanding with new opportunities. She livened up a staid Walmart meeting by taking on the role of Master of Ceremonies and persuading them to do her famous Legally Blonde bend and snap, shown below.

But alas, don’t look for Reese in future Legally Blonde films. Although Witherspoon, as shown in her choice of a TBT photo, still has that bubbly personality and spirit, she’s sworn off repeating that “Bend and Snap” on future film sets.
